Call them in! the poor, the wretched

Call them in! the poor, the wretched,
sin-stained wanderers from the fold;
peace and pardon freely offer!
Can you weigh their worth with gold?
Call them in! the weak, the weary,
laden with the doom of sin;
bid them come and rest in Jesus!
he is waiting: call them in!

Call them in! the Jew, the Gentile;
bid the stranger to the feast!
Call them in! the rich, the noble,
from the highest to the least.
forth the Father runs to meet them,
he hath all their sorrows seen ;
robe; and ring, and kiss of pardon,
wait the lost ones: call them in!

Call them in! the broken-hearted,
cowering ‘neath the brand of shame
speak love’s message low and tender!
‘Twas for sinners Jesus came.
see the shadows lengthen round us,
soon the day-dawn will begin;
call them in! the lost and lonely :
Christ is coming: call them in!
